Tips for Buying EarthBound

July 14th, 2009 | EarthBound, Images

A few months ago, Chippychan caught this picture of a cosplayer at Anime Central.

You generally wouldn’t expect to see a whole lot of EarthBound characters at something like this, at least not a Starman 😯 But I guess even Starmen love anime when they’re not busy taking over towns or chilling beneath Stonehenge.

This reminds me of a “Heavy Metal” poster I saw and some liquid metal/robot woman some time ago.

Terrible, terrible flashbacks to David Bowie’s Labyrinth outfit…

winwithlink said on Jul. 14, 2009

Thats obviously a real starman and not a cosplayer.
no human could move around in that suit… or eat, urinate etc… lol. I wish I had one.

WhatsHerFace said on Jul. 14, 2009

HAHA!
Wow.

zedrein said on Jul. 14, 2009

Chances are that person is familiar with starmen.net, if not a full member…who is it? Anyone care to wager some guesses?

daphny said on Jul. 14, 2009

there are always a million mother series cosplayers at anime conventions

slovaksiren said on Jul. 14, 2009

this, this is why I hate missing ACEN, oh well, I will be a pigmask colonel next JAFAX so there is going to be some epicness there, in speaking of which, gotta get that cape done!

J said on Jul. 14, 2009

Starmen don’t have hands!

In all seriousness, is there a zipper on the back or is that thing poured on.

@zedrein

Chances are good, but not for certain.

I was part of a Ness/Paula cosplay couple at A-Kon a couple years back for the Guiness World Record breaker of most people dressed as video game characters in one room (~700). Someone was from starmen.net I suppose, and he assumed the same thing. Was rather silly:

Person: Hey! Awesome! Ness and Paula!
Me: Hey! Awesome! A guy!
Person: *laughs* It’s so great to see fellow starmen.netters here.
Me: Er… we aren’t ‘starmen.netters’
Person: Huh? Then why are you dressed as Ness?

A square is always a rectangle, but a rectangle is not always a square. ^_^;;

Briianz said on Jul. 14, 2009

Quick! Someone get Ness, Lucas, or Ninten. Or maybe all three!

Spitball Sparky said on Jul. 14, 2009

Looks like the sexy robot on the Svedka boxes.

Zai said on Jul. 14, 2009

Actually, I usually identify more video game cosplayers at anime cons than actual anime cosplayers. At least at Otakon…

Actually, this year’s is in two days. Any EB Centralers going?

Aerostella said on Jul. 14, 2009

I’m going! Keep your eyes peeled for a Giygas cosplayer on Friday. ;D

questionsleep said on Jul. 14, 2009

Why, I was at ACen this year, and indeed heard about the Starman cosplayer from a Ness.
Apparently I’d just missed the Starman by minutes!

Strange – usually you’re not looking to encounter starmen ^^;

Q said on Jul. 15, 2009

Unfortunately, I’m not going to Otakon. I am, however, going to San Diego Comic Con, and intend to show up on Friday with a tuxedo, tophat, and flash camera.

PKSTARMAN said on Jul. 15, 2009

In Thatguywithglasses.com site, i discovered theres a walkthrough of Earthbound video! I hope you make an article about that. I like that people care about Earthbound nowadays… i hope more fans come here thanks to the walkthrough.

Zai said on Jul. 15, 2009

@Aerostella: I will! You wouldn’t happen to be this one I met last year, would you?

@Q: I’m going to both! I’m leaving Otakon Sunday afternoon and am flying out to California on Tuesday morning. I’ll be sure to keep my eye out for you on Friday ^.^

I’m actually cosplaying as well… but not as an EarthBound character. Sorry guys 😛

kamuikurou said on Jul. 15, 2009

At first, I thought it was the robot girls at Mother1, oh well, very nice starmen though ^^

honeymustard said on Jul. 15, 2009

Sexy.

bobbyjkl said on Jul. 15, 2009

that…bulge…hypnotic

Big A2 said on Jul. 15, 2009

…how does he breath in that?

Hyper Emerson said on Jul. 15, 2009

Do not underestimate him.

Digitalized said on Jul. 15, 2009

I’m going to Otakon. I live like… 5 miles away.

Shichiji said on Jul. 15, 2009

I don’t think I’d have the courage to wear that, despite how epic it is.

Aerostella said on Jul. 15, 2009

Zai: No, because a. It’s my first year at Otakon and b. I’m a girl. XD

santiagoff said on Jul. 15, 2009

Saw that, and it was surprising ;o

Leirin said on Jul. 15, 2009

Urr… a bit… of a gutsy move…

IWontGetOvertheDam said on Jul. 15, 2009

I…

And…

But…

Nevermind. 😐

TheLiberator said on Jul. 15, 2009

At anime cons, you should expect to see at least one cosplayer dressed as an Earthound character. When I was at Anime Expo 2009 a few weeks, I saw a Ness cosplayer, complete with a bat.

Claus said on Jul. 15, 2009

Wow, it must be very hot in there.

Robert said on Jul. 15, 2009

how did he breath?

Ginrei said on Jul. 18, 2009

I SAW HIM. Right when I arrived, I saw him in the distance and yelled “STARMAAAN~!”

He turned and waved, and it was then that I realized my camera was still packed in my suitcase. >_< So I didn’t go up to him to talk and ask if he was a Starmen.netter. I was indeed a sad panda…

pk time stop said on Nov. 14, 2010

he made a great costum. I would where it

Earth Saturn said on Mar. 17, 2012

That looks really hard to wear. It’s probably really hot, it looks pretty tight, so I have to give him props for doing this. If I ever go to a cosplaying event, I’m gonna dress up as Ness. Since I have Fangamer’s Ness shirt and hat.

I see camel toe.
